Are you mad, as a Mom or Dad, about this family’s struggles?

If your child has a debilitating illness and there is a controlled substance that is legal to prescribe in SC, you rejoice.  If your child needs Percocet, Vicodin, OxyContin to live a stable, pain-free, quality life your doctor can prescribe it.

If your child needs Insulin, you are blessed – a doctor can prescribe that. If your child struggles with depression or mood disorders, his/her suffering can be relieved with a prescription for Cymbalta, if your family deals with multiple sclerosis you can receive Copaxone.

But if your child suffers from 100 seizures a day and medical cannabis would ease that suffering, there are […]

August Tea Party Meeting – Guest Speaker Josh Kimbrell “Fatherhood on Trial”

After taking June and July off, the Spartanburg Tea Party will resume meeting in August.

Most of us recall the recent and very public legal situation Josh Kimbrell had to face … falsely accused of awful acts, ultimately vindicated and all charges dropped.  But Josh learned that his situation was not unusual – the family courts are often used in concert with the criminal justice system to separate children from parents.

Out of his experience Josh wrote a book “Fatherhood on Trial: The Fight to be a Father in the Age of Divorce”
Come to our Spartanburg Tea Party meeting on Tuesday August […]

Today, as reported by Gavin Jackson at the Post and Courier, the SC Supreme Court smacked down Wilson and gave the go ahead to Pascoe:

The state […]

Mick Mulvaney: Freedom Caucus legislative agenda

From Mick Mulvaney Facebook page:

Many of you know that I am a founding member of the Freedom Caucus. And while we seem to be known most for our efforts to oust John Boehner, the group has actually been involved in much, much more than that this year.

Today we rolled out our legislative agenda for the rest of the year. We tried to focus on 5 things that fit our mission statement — to represent the large swath of Americans who think that their government has forgotten about them — AND that we thought we could get real action on this […]
